This one is my favourite and I have to thank Ingrid for her idea.
The brick wall embossing folder made the background very easy to do. You can just see a peep of the Mint Macaron Dotty Lace Trim as the curtain in the window.
One trick - when you don't have the right dsp as was my problem when I came to make this card - stamp your own. Can you see where I might have stamped my own dsp?
I like the way this card below uses two windows. By scoring them you can use them as an open window. I've added a couple of tiny pearls to them to make it look like handles.
My cat is hand cut but to make life easier the Festive Fireside Framelits does come with a cute little cat so you don't have to cut your own like I did. Sigrid takes the credit for this design.
This was one I found on YouTube if you want to case this card. She explains how to make all the little herbs in the pots. Not a card that can be done in record time but it looks great if you have the time to make. On the inside I've added the little plant and watering can as she did.
My Mum helped out here with this one. She has doubled the size of the window by using this trick and has stamped a tree from the Sheltering Tree set. A cute little card for any occasion with its 'Just for You' sentiment from Watercolor Wings.
Now for the final project. A cute little lantern. It has its very own light courtesy of a battery operated tea light candle. There are quite a few of these lanterns around now and there are various tutorials around on how to make them different ways. I added a small holder on the inside base of mine to hold the candle as otherwise I felt it would slide around a lot. The red of the poinsettia looks brilliant against the black lantern and I'm very pleased with how it came out.
If you would like to know how to make any of these projects please let me know and we can set up a class to do so.
